PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Low-income pet owners were able to get their pets checked out for free on Sunday. 

The Portland Animal Welfare (PAW) Team held a drop-in veterinary clinic in northeast Portland. Sunday’s event was held at the group’s new permanent location on Northeast 82nd Avenue.

People were able to bring their pets in for basic exams, vaccinations, flea control, licensing and microchipping. 

FOX 12 spoke with a woman who brought her dog Bosco in to get checked out. 

"I think it's wonderful they are helping people who are low-income families and stuff. Like I'm a single mom without child support, so this really helps," said Kelli Dowling. "A lot of people can't afford these big vet bills. It's nice everyone volunteers and donates their time for low-income families."

The PAW Team offers weekly weekday clinics by appointment only. The next weekend clinic will be held on Sunday, Nov. 5.
